Deposits and Cancellations
A $1000 deposit must be paid in order to secure your space in the workshop. Full payment must be received by April 19, 2018.
Notice of your cancellation must be made in writing, at which time the following refunds are offered:
90 days or more before workshop: Full workshop refund minus the deposit.
90 or fewer days before workshop: no refund guaranteed. Your payment will be refunded if your spot can be filled.
No partial refunds are made for unused portions or services of a workshop. Workshops are sold as a package only.
If a workshop is cancelled, you will receive a full refund of any money paid, but I’d have to be on my deathbed before I’d cancel. But if I’m on my deathbed and need to cancel the workshop, I will not be held responsible for your other expenses, such as airline ticket, that may be associated with the canceled workshop. I suggest you purchase trip insurance to be safe, but I’ve never cancelled a destination workshop and it would take a major catastrophe before I cancel.
